Nations and States in Southeast Asia
This reflective and provocative book outlines the emergence of the nation-states of modern Southeast Asia. It considers various ways of looking at Southeast Asian history, combining narrative, analysis and discussion. The book's three sections give a broad historical overview of individual nation-states, reflect on significant problems in understanding Southeast Asia, and explore the current state of writing Southeast Asian history. This book reflects a lifetime's scholarship and will become a major interpretive synthesis of modern Southeast Asia.
